Clay UMC calls for food for community pantry

By Gary Lloyd

CLAY — Clay United Methodist Church is reaching out to the community because of a “critical low” in the community food pantry, according to a post on the city of Clay’s Facebook page.

The food pantry is housed and operates from Clay United Methodist Church on Old Springville Road. The pantry is open once per month to help neighbors in need of food when they’re struggling.

“This is an important and needed ministry for our city,” the Facebook post states.

The pantry serves anywhere from 10 to 15 families any given month and more during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.

Common food items that are packed in a box include hamburger, chicken and tuna helper; complete meals; large can chicken; macaroni and cheese; spaghetti sauce and noodles; canned ravioli and spaghetti; Vienna sausage; potted meat; canned chili; ramen noodles; peanut butter and jelly; soup; rice; mashed potatoes; canned vegetables; canned fruit; cereal; Pop Tarts; snacks; desserts; and more.

Donations may be dropped off at the Clay Public Library at 7257 Old Springville Road.

For more information or to donate, call Clay United Methodist Church at 205-681-2727.
